ARC DECRA Fellow in Earth Observation, UNSW

Yi is a hydrologist with research interests in using satellite-based obser­va­tions and model simulations to inves­ti­gate the hydro­log­i­cal cycle, e.g. pre­cip­i­ta­tion, evap­o­ra­tion, soil mois­ture, veg­e­ta­tion water con­tent and ground­wa­ter stor­age, for enhanced under­stand­ing of inter­ac­tions between dif­fer­ent hydro­log­i­cal components.

Recently Yi is work­ing on devel­op­ing satellite-based global long term (>20 years) veg­e­ta­tion water con­tent and aboveground biomass datasets using a series of satellites. The spatiotemporal variation in biomass carbon over past decades will be investigated to better understand how it responds to climate change and human activities.
